East Lindsey District Council has agreed to invest £95,000 in a modernisation programme that will see 35 machines across the district installed in the mid 1990’s updated with newer more reliable machines, with better technology and security.
These machines include those in Spilsby’s Market Place, Buttercross and Post Office Lane car parks.
The machines need replacing as many of their parts are now obsolete and in 2012 the Royal Mint is introducing new coinage that wouldn’t otherwise be compatible.
Car parks are a key income stream for Councils generating £2.6m of income each year in East Lindsey. This money is used to provide services to local people.
